Best of All Lookout (Springbrook National Park)

Very Easy
700m

Lovely little walk. Most challenging part is beating your way through the tourists. Went today and it was 8.5 degrees, so maybe rug up a bit.
Natural Bridge (Springbrook National Park)

Definitely recommend. Natural Bridge itself is magnificent, the rest of the walk was nothing to rave about. Take a friend.
Mt Tibberoowuccum (Glass House Mountains)

Attempted to solo this mountain today. Nearly fell off the trail. Nearly fell off the ridge. Got spooked by the big scary rock dome and turned around before climbing to the summit proper. Only discovered the well-formed track after I'd bushwhacked to the top through the steep sand and undergrowth. Nearly fell off the well-formed track on the way down. 10/10 would imperil self through poor planning again.

Perhaps better off going via Barrs Rd and keeping the mountain on your left, which seemed shorter than the way I went (watch out for the 4WD track). That dome at the end is bigger than it looks from the parking lot.

Awesome views of the GHMs. Might take 50 minutes if you do it three times. Great place to take interstate visitors.
Mount Coolum (Sunshine Coast)

Got to the last stretch, THE LAST DAMNED STRETCH, before the fear of heights set in on the exposed bit between forest and summit. Spectacular views over the Pacific and the Sunshine Coast itself. I imagine the inland views are awesome as well.

Nice pleasant walk without anything too challenging. Bit exposed towards the true summit, which got rather the better of my acrophobia, but the view from the summit ridge is spectacular regardless.
Tibrogargan Circuit (Glass House Mountains)
Mar, 2016
Easy

All pros from this walk. Didn't see a falcon, but the walk is beautiful, with rugged terrain. If you head north first, towards the end you will be rewarded with a gobsmacking close-up view of Tibrogargan's south face. Aside from that, the trees get in the way a bit.
Mount Beerburrum (Glass House Mountains)

Easy to get to. Good, well-formed (read: concrete) path with zero objective danger. Outstanding views, I felt like I could see to Perth. The drawback is that it is unbelievably steep in parts. Good for a challenge but less so for the casual plodder expecting Mount Ainslie.
